      Yuppie's DEILD guide - The easiest way to lucid dream.

      DEILD stands for dream exit induced lucid dreaming, the method involves waking up from a dream (lucid or not) and lying perfectly still, with the intention of going back into that dream, lucid.

      What are some of the positives of DEILD?

      DEILD is in my opinion of the easiest methods of lucid dreaming, it involves no prior preperation, and is very simple. It's a variation of wild, but much shorter and easier. Once this technique is mastered, you should be able to have lucid dreams as much as you like, it's as easy as that!

      How do I do DEILD?

      So, this is my personal technique I understand that alot of people have different ways of doing it, and will debate the more effective ways. Once again, this is what I find works well, this may also depend on the individual.

      1) This step is optional, but I recomend that before attempting DEILD, you spend about five nights practicing being able to wake up from a dream, perfectly still, here's how: A mantra will help things along, you'll get the idea in your head, and you'll remember, as opposed to forgeting as soon as you become concious. Try something along the lines of "I will remain still when I awake." As for keeping your eyes closed and remaining motionless, study the blackness of your eyelids, and tell yourself "When I see this, I will stay still, with my eyes closed" So you'll find great benefit in first perfecting your ability to stay still with your eyes closed when you leave a dream. This will make your efforts even more simplified. Once you master this, you've got the hardest part out of the way!

      2) Congratulations! You've now mastered how to stay still after your dream. (Or are more likely just reading on from the previous step )
      So after you leave your dream, and you find yourself lying there with your eyes closed, motionless, remembering to DEILD. You'll want to think of the dream you were just having. *side track* You can think of a new scenario you'd like but this is more difficult because the brain will have to kind of "create" everything, if you will. And it'll most likely wake you up. You can also think of a previous dream if you can't recall your last one. *End of side track* So as I was saying, think of your dream, I want you to focus on every aspect of it. What can you see, hear, taste, smell, feel? Let the dream englulf you, don't try to hard, just let it happen, it WILL happen.

      TIP: Alot of the time you'll think you're not going to fall asleep, or you haven't fell asleep, when really it's just your mind screwing you over, I had to deal with this problem about seven times, because I just couldn't relax and accept the fact that I just had to let it happen. There's really nothing to it. Trust yourself.

      3) If all goes well, you should find yourself INSIDE the dream, not just imagining it, the second hardest part if picking out when you're dreaming, and not letting yourself not realise, and falling into a non lucid dream. Once inside your dream, stabalize, and you're good!

      Last words

      This is my first guide ever, I'm only fourteen, so please cut me a bit of slack. All constructive feedback is welcomed and appreciated. I'd love to hear your comments and how it worked out for you! Keep trying!
      Give it at least a month before you rule it out, but you should be able to have a DEILD within a fortnight. DEILD is now my main method, and I have a lucid nearly every night.
      A lucid dream a night?! That's crazy! Find out how here: http://www.dreamviews.org/f49/yuppie...-dream-126343/

      Nice work on the tutorial! And great work on teaching yourself to DEILD from non-lucid dreams!

      I've had a DEILD chain before where I strung together 5-6 dreams but after that I don't think I've done it again. DEILD to me has always been one of the great options out there - quick and simple - especially when you already wake up multiple times in the night like myself.

      How have you felt about your recall with your staying still and re-entering a dream? Do you simply recall everything you can when you wake up for a final time?

      Step 1 is really helpful, several times I wondered the best way to wake up and not move ^^

      Thanks for posting this, simple and useful information especially for a technique not many people use. Personally you've convinced me to try DEILD

      I had 5 LD doing DEILD, it's a great method but for many many months I haven't been able to do even 1. I'd like to understand what's going wrong ??

      Nice work, Yuppie!

      I just want to point out one small thing that I hope is constructive:

      In your first step you suggest that we study the backs of out eyes so that we'll recognize them when we wake up, and keep them closed. That's a fine idea, except that pretty much everybody opens their eyes automatically upon waking. In other words, your eyes tend to be open at the same time, or even before, you realize you're awake. Maybe you could adjust the instruction to practice a way to quickly re-close your eyes upon waking? That's the way I do it, and it works pretty well for me.

      Just a thought.

      This is a nice tutorial.

      The only problem that I have is to wake up with my eyes closed; I can wake up without moving.

      Thanks for the tutorial! Shouldn't be too difficult for me because I always wake up with my eyes closed anyway. One question: how do you leave your dream? Do you just wait until it ends and you wake up naturally, or do you have to force yourself out of it early?

      Looking forward to trying your technique!

      Great guide

      Question: Is it possible to use an alarm that only plays for a short time to wake up in the middle of the night?

      Yes, although you would have to time it right to hit REM, natural awakenings are a lot more, natural.

      Thanks for all the feedback guys!

      Dark Merlin - To be honest, my memory is generally hazy, I've only just got back into dedicated lucid dreaming (writing my dreams down and such)
      I am able to remember my dream, but they normally come to me in fragments, for example, I'll remember waking up in bed, and then I'll be able to piece alot of it together, and once I have a rough idea, my mind seems to fill in all the blanks. I'm confident that my memory will become alot better with time as I have more and more time writing in my dream Journal. As for the DEILD chaining, It is tougher to remember, it's just factual, there's more to remember. However think of it like this: you're most likely entering your previous dream (another reason why this is the easiest choice) so if you suceed, then you'll become lucid, which means concious and aware (for a light definition) you'll probably remember your previous dream pretty well, because it's pretty much the same thing at the start. And I find that lucid dreams are easier to remember As of chaining, I've only ever done that twice, so I can't really share my experience, can you give me some information on that?
      That's what I find personally about recall for DEILDing. Thanks so much for the comment Merlin!

      Sageous - I'd have to say I disagree, I opened my eyes when I woke up all the time, but I managed to train myself to awake with my eyes closed. Would you consider trying the method and coming back to me on that? I'd really love to see if it'd help actually, maybe people vary? It would also tell me if the technique worked, well, not conclusively, but to an extent.
      Also, keep in mind, is no way waking up with your eyes close neccesary, it just keeps yo uin a very relaxed, dreamy, state. Being able to close your eyes as soon as you wake up, calmly and quickly, would not hinder your atempt very much. The idea of DEILD is to keep you in a semi - concious state, so you can just fall back into your dream, so as long as you had the idea to DEILD in your mind when you woke up, and you remained calm, motionless, and closed your eyes, you're good!
      However, I think if you tried the technique to have your eyes remaining shut, you might just suprise yourself! What have you got to lose?
      Thanks so much for the feedback! I'll add this into the guide
      And of course if it works effectively for you, then that obviously goes to show that it's not somethign that's going to stop you from DEILDing.

      WDR - Yes It should generally be quite and soft, just enough to wake you up, and it will have to turn itself off after a few seconds, because you can't be getting out of bed to turn your alarm clock off and then expect to fall straight back to sleep into a dream
      I don't see why can't try this without an alarm clock for a week or so? I don't understand the advantage?

      I have read that it is better to say mantras in the present tense. Can anyone have an explanation for this?

      It makes them more real. Mantras are meant to ease your mind into a "here and now" sort of condition, drawing it away from the distractions of memories or future plans.

      Also, if you repeat a mantra that you believe that you are, say, sitting on a beach, isn't it better to keep repeating "I am sitting on a beach" until you find yourself there? After all, if you say "I will be sitting on a beach" you could repeat that forever and never see the beach because your dreaming mind obligingly holds it in your future, away from you.

      There are other reasons, I'm sure, like present tense mantras are easier to remember and repeat, but these are the two best reasons, to me.

      I have done deild on accident before. I am hesitant to perform this again because I absolutely hate sleep paralysis.

      You might say it goes by fast but it can go wrong then bam I see those demons and shadow figures and I will poop bricks.

      Hence I never ever plan on wilding the traditional way.

      What should I expect?

      While DEILD IS a variation of WILD, it's alot different. If done correctly, it happens within seconds. I'm not going to lie to you, I have experienced sleepy paralysis, and hallucillations, but only once doing DEILD. IT wasn't scary, it was actually a cool experience, I felt like vibrations like an earth quake, and then footsteps, and breathing next to me. Then I transitioned, it CAN be scary in the moment, but it's really just like having a bad dream, it's scary at the time, but pretty cool when you look back on it. It's definetely worth it for a lucid dream anyway, besides, just reason with yourself that none of it is really happening, and it's fine
      Just ask yourself? What's the worst thing that could happen? You know it's not real, and yes, you might get scared.. but it's NOT real. You might freak out for a bit, but then you're good..
      Please give it a try! If you still don't feel comftorbale and think it's not worth it for a dream where you can do anything you can THINK of, for a few seconds of being scared, then quit. Simple!
      Thanks so much for your comment!
      What can you expect? Possibly some hallucinations, not so much paralysis, however it may vary person to person. I only experienced this once, then it stopped.

      Perfect! I already remember most of my dreams upon waking up, usually in the middle of the night, so I'll just give that a shot
      Question: do you still go into SP and have Hypnagogic Hallucinations? (I've gotten over my fear of them, I just want to know what to expect )

      You sound like the right person for this, while everyone can do this, you'll have a great advantage!
      I've only experienced HH once, and never SP
      Mostly because it happens to fast...
      Let me know how it goes!
      Thanks for the comment..
